estimate the total of some values when checkboxes are activated

Hello together,


I have a problem with estimating the total of some values, when a checkbox is activated. There's the following problem: I'd like to display the total of some values into a textbox. The values should be assigned to different checkboxes. When a checkbox is activated, the assigned value should be added to the total. At the moment, my app looks like this (the checkboxes "Workshops" and "Schulungen" are only there to set the other checkboxes onVisible):




 I've already tried it with context variables, but this didn't turned out well. Is there a way to solve this problem? If you have a solution which doensn't add up to my initial position, please still let me know.

Hi @Maurice,


Would you please share more information about the Data you would like to sum (Or add together) with, and how the checkbox works by filtering the data?

Toggle control could only return true or false value.

For example, if we would like to reference the value of the toggle control, we use:


Ans this only contains two value: True or false.

So assume we have a data dable, and would like to filter the table based on the toggle control value, we could write the formula as below:

If(toggle1.value = true, sum(filter(Table, Column=SomeValue), NumericalFormula(or field)))

Function reference:
